1979 AMC Pacer Repair Question
1979 AMC Pacer motor
1979 AMC Pacer V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 100 miles
I have a 304,5.0,automatic. I want to switch to a 6cyl. How difficult would that be?
Hey, Imma CJ kinda guy
SMART---I had a 304 in my 1st Jeep--too much engine
I could take on a F-16 in the 1/4 mile, till I ran out of 2nd Gear (manual tranny at 75 MPH) When I pulled it into 3rd, there was nothing left!
The CJ 304 Bell housing is the SAME ONE for a 258 or 232 on a manual tranny
To me it looks like your Automatic would bolt up the same way with no mods
'Course you know you will require 2 less plugs!
What you planning on sticking in it?
I recommend a 258--'77 to '79 (the newer one had a plastic cover and notorious for hard to stop leaking)has a Metal valve cover--get one with a 2 barrel BBD carb.....Whatever you get, be aware the ones w/ a 1 barrel carb had a different cam than the ones with a 2 barrel carb
I have the Factory Service manual for 1979 for the Jeep Series...covers 304s and 258s---trannys are mainly for 4WD...But some of it may apply for you!
Just let me know---I'm here to help--this new site RE-VAMP has me a little confused...Bear with me...reply here!
I will help all I can!
I've had 1--304, 5--258s (one presently)
Here's a peek at "Mr. Jeeps" Heart...w/ 4 barrel 390 HOLLEY and a OFFY intake.
